That's what it felt like...like we were dropping in to visit a friend on our way home to Australia via Ottawa :) We were pleasantly surprised by Ottawa with a bit of everything to see in a very walkable city. Some old sights, some shopping & some lovely walks all in a day.

From the moment we first contacted Australis they were helpful. Follow up email reminders, clear directions on getting there and what to do when we arrived made it easy for beginner travellers. The warm welcome on a crisp evening set the tone for a two day stay with an excellent breakfast, hints and tips on Ottawa from Carol and the...

Perfect location with No 16 bus to and from centre around 4-5 minute walk away or you can reach main street near University Campus up the hill in around 10 minutes. Brian and Carol are big travellers themselves and are extremely friendly and welcoming. Tasty breakfast and very clean room, pub and restaurants close by too.

Super friendly hosts that love to make you feel extra welcome. Breakfasts were great, the home made scones were excellent. Brian helped orient me with a map and some tips, and Carol was great to chat with for travelling in general. Good location, we walked maybe 10 minutes to the start of the Rideau Canal's skating area. Pub with great...

Although the minimum stay for this B&B was 2 nights, due to inclement weather, I had to cancel one of my nights on the last minute. Brian, the host, was very understanding and accommodating of the situation and only charged me for 1 night. Conveniently located, the Australis is walking distance to Byward Market, Rideau Center as well as University...

Me and my friend had been travelling around Canada from Australia on a 2 yr work visa. We decided to come back to Ottawa which we were previously living, to ice skate the canal in February. We had a great time and didn't realise Carol was Australian until we got there. We should've guessed by the name! Thank you so...
